Evidence for Jesus is weaker than you might think

Post by Deadpool on Sat Apr 22, 2017 3:06 pm

Most people would be shocked to learn how little is actually known about Jesus.

Note: This story was co-authored with David Fitzgerald, author of “Jesus: Mything in Action.”

Before the European Enlightenment, virtually all New Testament experts assumed that handed-down stories about Jesus were first recorded by eye witnesses and were largely biographical. That is no longer the case.

Assuming that the Jesus stories had their beginnings in one single person rather than a composite of several—or even in mythology itself—he probably was a wandering Jewish teacher in Roman-occupied Judea who offended the authorities and was executed. Beyond that, any knowledge about the figure at the center of the Christian religion is remarkably open to debate (and vigorously debated among relevant scholars).

Isn't it amazing how people just accept that the Bible is the truth.

If you eliminated all the religions today, eventually you'd have religions again but with all new stories and beliefs. If you wiped out science, eventually you would have science again but it would be exactly the same.
Says it all really.

I wonder if they could manage to come up with chocolate eggs that have something to do with a man on a cross again? scratch
